First Nations, First Thoughts: The Impact of Indigenous Thought in Canada

Annis May Timpson

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Countless books and articles have traced the impact of colonialism and public policy on Canada’s First Nations, but few have explored the impact of Aboriginal thought on public discourse and policy development in Canada. First Nations, First Thoughts brings together Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal scholars who cut through the prevailing orthodoxy to reveal Indigenous thinkers and activists as a pervasive presence in diverse political, historical, constitutional, and cultural debates. It examines the impact of Indigenous thought in multiple arenas, including urban spaces, universities, the courts, governments, archives, and museums. This innovative, thought-provoking collection encourages us to imagine a stronger, fairer Canada, one in which Aboriginal self-government and expression can be fully realized.
